He’s the same quarterback who was on the Detroit Lions and they still didn’t go to the playoffs, and they had Megatron [캘빈 존슨]. What was the problem over there in Detroit? Are you going to blame the city? What was the problem? Was it the money? If the city didn’t have enough money to bring players over there, why even have an NFL team? That’s a big question mark,” Ward told 스포츠 일러스트 월요일에.
“They went and traded Jared Goff, who went to the playoffs several times and went to the Super Bowl. 네, he lost. He went to the Super Bowl, 그러나. I’ve yet to see that with Matt Stafford. And I’m saying, he’s still great. I believe he’s a top 10 쿼터백, maybe top 5. 모르겠어요. We’ll see. I’m just going off of what I see. And I see Jared Goff got those boys to the Super Bowl.”
